For those who got the chinese LPG flame machines (or deals with propane stage effects).

Does anyone have advice on operation and/or links to regulators to buy as spares.

I do not fully understand the operation and want to make sure everything is safe before blasting off. The manual leaves a lot to be desired and the regulator is mostly chinese writing.

we are in the process of tinkering with our cannon. You know we got your back if you have any questions. They are awesome. Can wait to light one off.

P.S the skull YouTube video is fantastic. You nailed the lighting!!!

Thanks Tim.

If you find a regulator , let me know the details on it as i need to buy another one myself.

The lighting on the skull vid was one "fake silk fire" goblet. lol


Anyone else get these flamers?

To answer my own question and for the archive files, this regulator works with the flame cannons

Smith Propane (LP) 30-50-510 1 78.75 Gas = LP/Propane/Propylene/Natural
Regulator - 30 Series Gas (CGA 510)
Medium Duty

They almost never, ever wear out. At least the ones on USA furnaces didn't.
A gas valve can stop working long before most any regulator, electric gas valve, that is.

The deal from chinesedepartmentstore.com makes you buy 4 of them.

I split the lot and used them separately, hence the need for additional regulators.

Are these real flame canons? The YouTube link didn't work. I'd live to see video the prices are great for flame effects!

Didn't someone post on here last summer selling flame canons for like $150-$250 or so? I'd love to see/learn more about these...

Thanks again,
